Havens Winery Merlot Napa Valley 2014

Havens Winery Merlot Napa Valley 2014

We are proud to share our 2014 Merlot, which has been receiving accolades since its release.

The Havens 2014 Merlot Napa Valley is a seductive red wine. The rocky volcanic soils found here are composed of basalt, compact ash, sandstone and shale and are the foundation of Napa’s reputation for world-class wines. We take great pride in choosing select lots of merlot from our growers throughout the Napa Valley. Crushed and de-stemmed prior to fermentation, the grape lots were kept separate and punched down two or three times a day, finishing fermentation in seven to nine days. Following fermentation, our winemaking team picks the best barrels to make the final blend.

Harvest Date: September 27th-29th, 2014

“Kudos to Havens for keeping their price structure among the fairest in Napa Valley... I’m sure there’s been pressure to raise prices, but they have resisted that. The 2014 Merlot from Havens remarkably celebrated their 30th vintage in Napa. It has a dense purple color and beautiful black cherry and blacker fruits, with hints of delicate chocolate and coffee bean. It is full-bodied, opulent, and certainly about as good as Merlot in Napa can be. This luscious, sexy style of wine is totally charming. Drink it over the next decade or more."
